Doug Bradley is best known for playing the role of Pinhead, the lead Cenobite, in the first eight Hellraiser films, as well as Captain Elliot Spencer in two of the films, Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988) and Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992). He is one of only six actors to play the same horror character at least six consecutive times, the others being Christopher Lee (Count Dracula), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), Warwick Davis (the Leprechaun), Brad Dourif (Chucky) and Tobin Bell (Jigsaw). After his roles in the Hellraiser films and the 1990 horror film Nightbreed, 2006 saw Bradley star in Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes and 2008 saw Bradley once again returning to Clive Barker’s cinematic universe by way of a featured appearance in Book of Blood, and in two award-winning short horror films On Edge and Red Lines. Doug also adapts, directs and performs the Doug Bradley’s Spine Chillers series of films and audio books. He had a guest star appearance in the 2008 black comic horror The Cottage. In 2010, he starred in the Anglo-Spanish horror film, Exorcismus, and he joined the Nazi zombie horror The 4th Reich in March 2010. In 2012, he played “Maynard” in the fifth film of the Wrong Turn series, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines. In 2013, he performed in the indie film Scream Park.
